Remote Sensing of Cold Regions
0.5 Credit

This course focuses on the extraction of hydrologically-relevant parameters from remote sensing that are germane to cold regions such as snowfall, snow cover, glaciers and ice caps, lake and river ice, permafrost and seasonally frozen ground. The determination of hydrological parameters in the liquid and vapour phases such precipitation, soil moisture, surface water, and evaporation/ evapotranspiration from remote sensing, as well as the integration of remote sensing data into hydrological models are also covered.
